Brain Injuries and Symptoms By Severity
Unfortunately, one of the most common catastrophic injuries that a person can sustain is a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries are daunting because of the types of short and long-term damages that the injured person is left to deal.
Unfortunately, when these situations are caused by someone else’s negligence, could face long drawn-out legal action.
A Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
While mild traumatic brain injuries are sustained all the time, not everyone is aware when they receive one. For instance, someone may experience a loss of consciousness for a few minutes, feel confused, feel nauseous, or have headaches after some sort of trauma to the head. This could be a mild traumatic brain injury.
A Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury
When someone sustains a moderate traumatic brain injury, they may experience both physical and cognitive symptoms, including the following:
- Extended loss of consciousness
- Lasting or worsening headaches
- Numbness in extremities
- Coordination issues
- Slurred speech
- Change in behavior
A Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
A severe TBI is the most damaging with many of the individuals suffering severe cognitive deficiencies, as well as trouble with speech and language. For instance, a person may not understand certain words or have trouble being understood themselves.
There may also be trouble with holding attention, impulsiveness, memory loss, prolonged confusion, and more. There may be sensory problems as well, including touch, taste, smell, hearing, and vision issues.
